Ben Affleck Thanks Robin Williams For Launching His Career With GOOD WILL HUNTING

Actor, writer, director and producer Ben Affleck took to Facebook earlier today to express his gratitude to Robin Williams for the part the star played in bringing GOOD WILL HUNTING to fruition, as well as his overall impact on Affleck's life and career.

"Heartbroken. Thanks chief - for your friendship and for what you gave the world. Robin had a ton of love in him. He personally did so much for so many people. He made Matt and my dreams come true.

What do you owe a guy who does that? Everything.

May you find peace my friend. #‎RobinWilliams?"

GOOD WILL HUNTING launched the careers of Affleck and co-star Matt Damon, who co-wrote the screenplay for the drama, which is set in their hometown of Boston.

The movie follows young laborer -- and hidden genius -- Will Hunting (Damon), who begins seeing a therapist (Williams) as part of a plea deal after assaulting a police officer. Will begins to study advanced mathematics with an acclaimed professor (Stellan Skarsgard) and through his therapy sessions, starts to understand his relationships with his best friend (Affleck), his girlfriend (Minnie Driver) and himself.

Williams went on to win the 1997 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his performance. Affleck and Damon took home the Oscar for Best Screenplay. The film was nominated for nine Academy Awards in all.
